Sydney Roosters PLAYER RATINGS FOR SUNDAY'S NRL GRAND FINAL AT ANZ STADIUM:

Fullback: Anthony Minichiello - Avoided record of losing five grand finals and no one deserves it more. Committed and solid as ever - Rating: 7

Winger: Daniel Tupou - Magnificent leap to score a try and his size caused all sorts of problems for David Williams. Superb under the high ball in defence - Rating: 8

Centre: Michael Jennings - Outstanding skill to score the winning try, great in defence, almost certainly booked his World Cup spot - Rating: 8

Centre: Shaun Kenny-Dowall - Much-maligned by Roosters fans this season, but was on hand to score and generally solid - Rating: 6

Winger: Roger Tuivasa-Sheck - The Kiwi excitement machine was kept largely in check by the Manly's rugged left edge - Rating: 6

Five-eighth: James Maloney - Had a hand in three tries, banished the memories of his 2011 grand final heartbreak with the Warriors. Outstanding - Rating: 9

Halfback: Mitchell Pearce - A steady hand on the tiller, happy to do the grunt work in defence and used all his State of Origin experience to get his side home - Rating: 7

Prop: Jared Waerea-Hargreaves - Aggressive as ever, got away with apparent headbutt on Justin Horo. Lost the ball late on, 30 metres from his own line but Manly failed to take advantage - Rating: 5

Hooker: Jake Friend - Most improved hooker in the game. Added guile to his workrate and now proved he does have a kicking game - Rating: 7

Prop: Sam Moa - Blockbusting start, poleaxed Glenn Stewart in the opening set. Ran strongly, hit hard - Rating: 7

Second-row: Aiden Guerra - Scored the vital second-half try to get his side back in the game - Rating: 7

Second-row: Sonny Bill Williams - Did nothing for an hour. Then set up the two tries to win the game and saved one on his own line. Is he departing the NRL with a premiership? - Rating: 7

Lock: Boyd Cordner - Rushed back into the side after two months out with a serious ankle injury. No surprise that he looked off the pace - Rating: 5

Interchange: Frank-Paul Nuuausala - Didn't see much game time. Gave away possession in one of the few sets was involved in - Rating: 5

Mitch Aubusson - Lucky to avoid the sin bin after giving away penalty try in the second half - Rating: 5

Luke O'Donnell - Had a huge impact when he came on in the first half to wrest momentum back for his side. Finished the game with a hamstring injury - Rating: 7

Daniel Mortimer - Did little wrong when he came on but not on long enough to make a telling contribution - Rating: 6
